IPL 2018 Live Score KKR vs RR: Two IPL 2018 Playoffs spots are remaining and there are five teams vying for those. Two of them, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, clash against each other on Tuesday at the Eden Gardens. Knight Riders host the Royals and this will be a cracker of a game. Knight Riders seem to have picked up their momentum back and for Royals, they have won their previous three games and are fourth in the IPL 2018 Points Table. Jos Buttler is the main reason for the uprise late in the tournament. But they need to perform once again against Kolkata as Eden Gardens will favour the home team. KKR would be happy to see Sunil Narine find his batting mojo back and also how Dinesh Karthik is performing. After today’s match, one playoffs spot may be decided.

Jos Buttler has found a new lease of life in this year’s IPL since he has been sent up the top to open the innings. He has scored four fifties in the past four matches and scored match-winning 94* and 95* in the last two matches. KKR need to get him out quickly because the England batsman has the abilities to turn the tide of the match at any point in the game, single-handedly. He is the key player for Rajasthan Royals.

For Kolkata Knight Riders, it will be Trinidad allrounder Sunil Narine, who will once again be the key player. Coming out to open in the previous match against KXIP, Narine smashed 75 in 36 balls. He can also be the answer to Jos Buttler, with the England batsman’s struggle against spin. 

The encounter between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals is extremely crucial with both teams up for a Playoff spot contention. After KXIP’s heavy loss against RCB, KKR have climbed to the third position with a better NET RUN RATE than both RR and KXIP, with 12 points. While RR are at the 4th position with same points. The table can see a massive shift with this encounter, though. Here is a look at the IPL POINTS TABLE

In the IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday at Holkar Stadium in Indore, RCB bowlers rose to the top as they bundled out the hosts for just 88. Chasing such a low total, skipper Virat Kohli came out to open with Parthiv Patel and the duo went on to chase down the target in just 8.1 overs, to ensure a 10-wicket victory for Bangalore.

IPL Live Score 2018 KKR vs RR: A buoyant Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns with a charged up Rajasthan Royals in a battle for survival at the Indian Premier League T20 tournament at Eden Gardens on Tuesday. Their fate hanging in balance, a loss in the penultimate league round match may virtually sound the death knell for one of the two teams.

It’s a mad scramble for the two available play-off berths with five teams including KKR and RR, who are tied on 12 points, remaining in the hunt. To make the competition stiffer, both the teams have picked up late momentum in the business end of the tournament.

Down after back-to-back defeats, KKR bounced back with a bang, posting the fourth highest total of the IPL — 245/6 — to down Kings XI Punjab by 31 runs in their last match.

From being on the verge of elimination, RR too have returned to the reckoning with a hat-trick of wins, thanks to the imperious form shown by Jos Buttler who was adjudged man-of-the-match in all the three victories.

The RR opener struck an unbeaten 94 to seal an easy seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians last night. This was the English wicketkeeper-batsman’s fifth consecutive half-century — an IPL record jointly held with Virender Sehwag.

His scores in the last five innings read 67, 51, 82, 95*, 94* and Buttler along with allrounder Ben Stokes, who has played in different positions in the batting order, will be the two major threats for KKR.
